You know, I'm kind of funny about shooting pictures of engaged couples...If I don't feel like they're truly in this thing together, if I don't see true love in the man's eyes, I don't want to shoot it...maybe it's because I dated a boy for ten years, then called off the wedding three days before, because I looked in his eyes and didn't see the true, undying love, and the difference, now with my sweet little hubby, seeing the love through my bleary, allergy puffed slits of eyes, even though I cry at coca cola commercials, even though I simply refuse to clean my own house, even though I once pinked an entire load of his clothes when trying to wash them for him, makes me want everyone to be as gloriously happy as I am. I guess that's it.
But I digress. Because Bridget and Nick are one of those couples that Everyone envies. They are so different as people, but so "one" as a couple. Nick is one of those guys that you could see hanging out, drinking beer and laughing and joking while watching the game with the guys, then going home and writing a love poem and hiding it for Bridget to find. Bridget is so beautiful and glamourous, you would think she's a model, not a pharmacist! Amazing. They are totally in love, and blissful, and very fun to be around. They'll be married in their home state of Iowa this summer, with 350 guests witnessing their union under that blue, blue sky. I know that this beautiful couple is going to make it, and I look forward to shooting all of their gloriously beautiful babies.
